Going Into Day 4 Of The NFL Combine

The NFL Scouting Combine is heading into day four and starting fieldwork. The combine is in Indianapolis and Gators have eight players there to put in work. On Friday, the running backs, offensive linemen and special teams are doing fieldwork, while some other groups are getting measurements done.

Big Names

Some of the bigger names competing in the combine at the RB position are: Josh Jacobs (Alabama), David Montgomery (Iowa State), Damien Harris (Alabama), Benny Snell, Jr. (Kentucky), and Miles Sanders (Penn State).

The bigger OL names include Jonah Williams (Alabama), Andre Dillard (Washington State), Dalton Risner (Kansas State), Cody Ford (Oklahoma), Greg Little (Mississippi), David Edwards (Wisconsin) and Yodny Cajuste (West Virginia).

K-State’s, Alex Barnes, impressed everyone Thursday when he broke the bench press record for true RB’s with 34 reps. It was previously held by Jerick McKinnon (Georgia Southern) with 32 reps.

Field workouts start today at the combine and four Gators will be participating. These players include Martez Ivey, Fred Johnson, Jawaan Taylor, and Jordan Scarlett.
